Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — Governor Carlos Joaquín presided over the start of operations of the Command and Surveillance Center (C2) of Isla Mujeres, which will be interconnected with the C5 Command Centre of the Quintana Roo Police to improve response time.
The C2 is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for intelligent monitoring in the territory of the island through 136 video surveillance cameras installed in 34 strategic points. In each of these points, there is a mobile camera that covers 360º of amplitude.
The governor of Quintana Roo, together with municipal president Juan Luis Carrillo Soberanis, oversaw the new equipment and weapons that will be available to elements of the municipal corporation.
Carlos Joaquín said that today, technology is essential for security and investigations to capture those who commit crimes.
The governor explained that since the beginning of his administration, in coordination with the federal government, armed forces, municipalities and society, institutions are being strengthened in order to regain people’s confidence, which had been lost in previous governments.
The coordinator of the Security and Justice Bureau of Cancun and Isla Mujeres James Tobin, explained that C2 represents an advantage on the island to have greater security and coordination between society and the government now that traffic and firefighting issues can be addressed, which are the main concerns of the people.
Juan Luis Carrillo Soberanis said that getting the C2 up and running is the result of joint work of citizens, businessmen, municipal government and state government.
“Working together has allowed improving public services, both in the continental zone and on the island, by increasing the police surveillance capacity with cutting-edge tools to be one of the safest municipalities in the state,” he said.
